JooJooâs trip to the FCC reveals N270 Atom, Nvidia ION internals

,----[ Quote ]
| The JooJoo will ship with a Linux user 
| interface, however other pictures from the 
| FCC show it running with Windows 7 that 
| could point to future OS choice. The non-
| removable battery should last for 5 hours. 
| The JooJoo is due to launch on 25 March. 
| Check out some more pictures below.


Here comes Linux's iPad clones

,----[ Quote ]
| But â and this is the important bit â you 
| don't have to buy an Apple iPad to get all 
| of the iPad's goodies. ARM, a mobile 
| microprocessor power, is predicting that 
| we'll see no less than 50 ARM processor-
| powered iPad clones by year's end â and 
| these ARM-powered entertainment tablets will 
| all be running Linux.
| There will be also other Linux-powered iPad 
| clones. Some of them will be running 
| Android. Others will be running MeeGo, which 
| is Intel and Nokia's combining of their 
| embedded Linux efforts. These latter devices 
| will have the new Intel Atom Pineview 
| processor family at their heart.
| All these Linux entertainment tablets are 
| going to be cheaper than the iPad. You can 
| expect to see the first of them by 
| midsummer. Some of them will not force DRM 
| on your content and, unlike the iPad, you'll 
| be able to watch Adobe Flash videos on them.



Android - the winning formula for tablets and netbooks?

,----[ Quote ]
| What might the iPad have been? Apple
| announced it as a Magical and Revolutionary
| Device, defining "an entirely new category".
| But it actually only addresses a small part
| of the yawning gap between mobile handsets
| and notebook computers, where there's still
| a lot of defining to be done. There's space
| there for dramatically different
| reimaginations of the iPhone, for counter-
| attacks from handset companies, and for
| diverse devices based on Google's Android.


$200 Freescale Tablet Runs Android, Chromium OS or Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Remember the Freescale Smart Tablet from CES
| earlier this year? Well its returned with a
| range of compatible operating systems which
| now includes Android, Chromium OS or Linux.


Prototype $200 Tablet Runs Android, Chromium OS, Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| It canât touch the form factor of the iPad
| or some other tablet devices, but a $200
| device that runs the open source Linux,
| Android or Chrome operating systems might
| just find a place in the already-crowded
| tablet world.


Freescaleâs $200 tablet will support Chromium, Android and Linux OSes

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this year at CES, Freescale
| revealed a $200 smartbook tablet reference
| design that they were shopping around to
| partners.
| It was a beautiful tablet for the price,
| powered by a 1GHz i.MX515 ARM processo.
| Other specs included 512MB of DDR2 RAM, a
| 1,024 x 600 multitouch screen, between 4GB
| to 64GB of internal storage, a microSD
| expansion slot, optional 3G WWAN module,
| 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, a USB
| 2.0 socket, audio in / out, 3 megapixel
| camera, inbuilt 3-axis accelerometer, an
| ambient light sensor and a 1,900mAh
| battery.


HTC Touch Pro2 Runs Ubuntu Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| This is probably another development that
| Microsoft wonât be too happy about, but
| itâs not like they can stop you from
| tinkering with your phone, right? Now,
| after the HTC Touch HD has been hacked to
| run Android, weâve got wind of a HTC Touch
| Pro2 running Ubuntu Linux 8.04. Of course,
| the OS is really meant for laptops and
| desktops, but again, nobody can stop you
| from having some fun, right?

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
